    Skepticism is normally a good thing; but it's best to back it up with actual evidence even if you hope a group you hate is responsible for something.

    It's nice that Smith and Cavuto are unwilling to be pimps for the attention whores that are interviewed on their program.
    Philippe Karsenty, Cavuto's guest, was out of line for outright labeling it a terrorist act.

    Shep Smith was out of line as his guest only cited possibilities consistent with recent events in France. At this point in time, accident is also no more than a possibility.

    Getting there slowly:
    Francois-Henri Pinault pledged 100 million euros (about $113 million) and another 200 million euros ($226 million) was promised by Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
    He also The LVMH Group at the disposal of the state and the relevant authorities including all of its teams creative, architectural and financial specialists to help with reconstruction and fund-raising.
    The French cosmetics company LOreal owners, the Bettencourt family, have pledged to 200 million euros. Another major French corporation, the oil company Total, has committed to donating 100 million euros.
    Add to that the French casinos and Societe Generate bank, plus 50 million euros from the city of Paris itself. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the tech company would be donating.
    One early estimate indicated that the cost of rebuilding the project will run about $8 billion.

    SR mentioned that on the Neil Cavuto show yesterday a guest started talking about all the fires set in French churches and he was promptly quieted by Cavuto, who basically said that he wanted none of that.

    I read Gatestone most days, and there seems to always be articles about the persecution of Christians, the atrocities committed by the "immigrants" in Europe and particularly about the cover-up by the European countries.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it was a "convenient" fire, but don't expect to ever be told the truth. It would be more comforting to believe that it was an accident.

    Computer glitch" may be behind Notre Dame Cathedral fire, rector says - live updates

    A "computer glitch" may have been behind the fast-spreading fire that ravaged Notre Dame, the cathedral's rector said Friday. Speaking during a meeting of local business owners, rector Patrick Chauvet did not elaborate on the exact nature of the glitch, adding that "we may find out what happened in two or three months."

    On Thursday, Paris police investigators said they think an electrical short-circuit most likely caused the fire. French newspaper Le Parisien has reported that a fire alarm went off at Notre Dame shortly after 6 p.m. Monday but a computer bug showed the fire's location in the wrong place.
    I think the fire was started by Antoine Le Torche (Tony the torch)

    While the words computer glitch make for an attention getting headline, the body of the text is a more responsible explanation of the ignition source.

    Ever heard of a computer-glitch doing that anywhere anytime ever in the case of a fire?

    Me neither.

    And how distant would the 'wrong location' be before somebody says: " Wait a minute... "

    I have heard of problems related to systems used to route emergency calls and direct emergency personnel to the scene.
